Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
A hazed blonde ale with a thick frothy white head, In aroma, loads of Brett, horse blanket, fresh cork, nice resinous hops coming through, humic substances, soil, very nice and wild. In mouth, nice fruity citrusy malt with light acidity, good Brett, ground cherries, cork, nice esters, refreshing yet complex. Really liked this. 8.99$.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2014
couleur or, mousse blanche épaisse, nez discret sur la levure et le citron. Bouche acidulée, citronnée, carbonatation élevée, légèrement boisée et amère, peu houblonnée. Finale de bonne longueur, acidulée, toujours du citron et un léger boisé, c’est bien équilibré mais assez pauvre aromatiquement, plus proche d’une gueuze que d’une pale ale

Plovmand (6351) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
It pours hazy yellow with a big bubbly white head. In the nose is brett, sweet exotic fruits, citric hops and funk. The flavor is quite bitter and exotic fruity with a great dry brett kick. Very tasty and refreshing. The kind of beer you could drink all day long.

Grzesiek79 (3179) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Dobre piwo dzikie ale nareszcie sie udalo jankesa. Piwo ma trwala niebywale i mocna piane. Morelowy kolor ze sporym zemgleniem, metnosc naprawde spora ale na dnie nie bylo ich widac. Zapach chmielu Galaxy powala w nozdrza. Piwo jest cudne w smaku, lekko kwaskowe troche limonkowe i grejfrutowe i cierlkawe tak jak lubie, zero slodu i cukrow. Polecam.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 30, 2014
Clear golden colour, big white head. Great yeasty, fresh and dusty hoppy aroma with wheat, toast, wood, apricot, a medicinal note. Really nice sour and bitter flavour with wet grass, apricot, toast, lemon, a herbal floral finish. Interesting and delicious.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from more backlog. Pours out a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is complex, nice funky notes, wood, some sourdough bread, light piney/citrus bitterness and some wet wood that intensifies as it warms. Taste is complex, lots of funky doughy, light tart notes, with a solid amount of bitterness that lingering along with some bandaid funk, light horse blanket. This one was really tasty.
